I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.

The higher animals are in a sense drawn into Man when he loves them and makes them (as he does) much more nearly human than they would otherwise be.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in heaven.
I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman.
The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you,
none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
